The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Patch 1.04 is released for PC that brings various numbers of fixes. The patch is not going to introduce any kind of new stuff in the game.
The patch mostly deals with some fixes that are essential for the game to work properly. For example after adding the patch you can now simply rebind all the keys which were not quite possible before. This option is unlocked and finally added into the Options section. You have to go in the key binding section where you will find the option through which you can setup your own controls.
A few fixes have been done on the dialogues part. This was in-appropriate before as reported by the users. One of the major fixes this bug brings is the resolution issues when you play the game on 1280×720 pixels. This would help people to play game more comfortably on good graphic settings.
Another issue the patch resolves is stuttering problem of boat. The patch does some important fixes to game resolution due to which it is a bit important install for The Witcher 3 game. A lot of improvements you are going to see in the game texture rending quality on mid and on ultra settings. A bit of improvements are also added in NVIDIA Hairworks.
